Man becomes man not only by his intelligence, but his by his heart” Henri Frederic Amiel -edited.

I believe, that the most natural way, to develop your intelligence on a daily basis, is to live by the unspoken principles that a child lives by. When you allow you’re consciousness to deepen its connection to its inborn qualities, you will see a rapid transformation in your intellect, sense of fulfilment and joy.

Be Inquisitive be Child Like

Children learn at an amazing pace and you can too. Children are always asking questions, what’s this, what’s that, how does this work, how does that work, why, how etc. Children can really go on and on, it can drive you up the wall, however, that’s how we all acted in are early years to some degree or another.

Being inquisitive’ led us to learn at an amazing rate, from the time of birth, to this moment now, growing stronger and stronger daily, learning new things ever day, building new mental connections with the environment and the people within it.

Natural Mind Stimulation

When you go to work, college, university or wherever you go on a regular basis – take a different route, it may be longer but it will give you the opportunity to see different places and people.

Be conscious of your environment, notice the trees, the people on the bus or train, the people you pass on the street, the buildings the landscape – take it all in, Be aware like a child is in a new environment.

Be inquisitive be varied Try Something Different

Get out their – go some place that you would not normally go. if you’re the type of person- who enjoys the “quiet slow pace, walk in the park type life style ”, go do something different, theirs a whole world of choices out there, for instance you could, get down on the dance floor with some salsa classes or paint balling with friends, how about kick boxing, explore your wild or energetic side, be adventurous.

If you’re a wild child cool it down for a change and get interested in the more subtle side of life. Go for a bike riding along a river, have a walk in the park, fine tune your senses, visit a library or gallery, be like a tourist and visit places of interest in your city, or even take a break to the countryside. Your personality will become multidimensional by opening up your awareness to new things, which intern will enrich your character.

Use your new inquisitive aptitude to develop your Social Intelligence

Develop your social intelligence by exercising your rapport building skills, converse with people from all walks of life… pay special attention to what the other person has to say, rather then waiting for your turn to speak, you will learn allot and gain new insists.

The intelligent person listens and feels what is being said to them before responding, the intelligent person first seeks to understand then seeks to be understood, this is the golden role of communication.

Have a Positive and inquisitive Attitude

• In private and in public having a positive attitude is essential to the smooth running of your mental energies.

• In private, a positive aptitude allows you to learn quicker, because your mind is clear of negative thoughts and feeling that slow down your thinking and more intuitive abilities.
• In public your positive attitude will make you a more magnetic person; people will find you easier to speak too, and get along with.

Conscious Character Building … Using my time wisely

During the time I spent working in the Security Industry, I insured that my free time at work was used wisely because in this line of work there is a lot of standing /sitting around waiting for something to happen. I was able to utilise my time reflecting, studying, reading material on subjects such as – Personal Development, Stock Market Investment, Business and Finance, History and Politics to name but a few and all the while I was getting paid, its was like my job in Security was my means to further my education.

Part of my role involved being booked for Private Jobs such as Corporate Events and Celebrity Functions. I would mingle in with the crowd and exercise my communication and social skills. This was great because I was getting paid-while I consciously developed my confidence and inter personal skills.

I would get into conversations with Television and Movie Directors – Actors and Musicians- Artists, Members of Management from different levels and Politicians. Speaking of Politicians I met former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, I didn’t get the opportunity to speak to him in any great detail, but it was nice to exchange a few words and to interact with. I have also met and spoken to Sir Richard Branson, best known as the Boss of the Virgin Brand, which was very interesting.

Working as a Security Agent, I made it a priority to look for and take advantage of any opportunities to further my growth and knowledge. It is certainly not standard practice to interact with VIPs in the way I did. Security Agents normally keep a low profile, keeping an eye on things from the side line. Take a look around, explore your environment, be inquisitive take a deeper look at your surrounding be proactive at Work, University or School get involved, learn the workings of such structures.

Make the most out of it

• It is a must that you use your time wisely and creatively in order to maximise the value of the moments in your day. Theirs always something you can do to add too or train your intelligence.

• Utilise the opportunities presented in your environment, this is not only the key to growing your intelligence, but it is the key to uncovering the value in any moment.

• See how you can make the most out of your environment; look for opportunities to make the most out of your circumstances.

• See what you can learn, get into conversations with people, members staff and management. Ask questions!

People are walking encyclopaedias

• Be interested in what people have to tell/teach you, everyone has something good to say to you. See people as walking fun encyclopaedias, just waiting to tell you what’s in their heads. You can learn a lot, when we get interested in people, the more you speak to people the stronger your social intelligence grows.

• Probe people; see how you can deepen the connection between you and the person you’re speaking to. Get into their psychology find out what makes them tick, what their interest are, be open and honest, be ready to give.

• Allow the people that you come into contact with to educate you in their field of knowledge. It is both enriching to you and enriching to the person you’re with. It gives them the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings, ideas and concepts.
Look for what is relevant to you. Find out what their perspective is on life and general issues find out if their can tell you some thing you don’t already know.

• What can people tell you about things, that can help you or at least point you in the right direction to something you are looking for? It could be anything from entertainment to investment, find out what books they are reading, where did they take their last holiday, where have they travelled to in the past, find out what made them go there, what places would their recommend and why etc.

• Let the people you come in contact with tell you about their work, hobbies and interests allow you’re self to enter into their world, see what you can learn from them. People have a lot to say and your environment has a lot to offer.
